Former, DG, IMI, India | Ex-Director, MDI | Ex-Director, IIM-L
Padmashree Dr. Pritam Singh – an inspiring role model, has spent his life tirelessly doing what he does best: awakening students, academia, corporate heads, and policymakers to raise their excellence to the next level. As the Chairman and Member of several policymaking committees and bodies of Government of India, he has stamped his perspective on policy issues that surround both management education and corporate management in India. He sits on the boards of more than 20 reputed private- and public sector organizations, helping them initiate change processes and charter winning, corporate strategies. As a consultant, Dr Singh has worked with more than 200 CEOs in India and abroad and conducted more than 100 retreats for the top management of both private and public-sector organizations as well as multinational corporations.
He was the Director General of International Management Institute, India. Previously, he has been the Director of Management Development Institute (MDI), Gurgaon, India (1994–1998 and 2003–2006), and Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIML), India (1998–2003). Dr Singh turned around the fortunes of both MDI and and IIML, and, quite fittingly, earned the repute of being the “Midas Touch” Director.
